Santa’s helpers from St John’s

South Burnett Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE | KINGAROY CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL -

LOTS of ef­fort from the com­mu­nity has gone into or­gan­is­ing the 2018 AGL En­ergy Kin­garoy Christ­mas Car­ni­val.

The Kin­garoy Christ­mas Car­ni­val Com­mit­tee brought in the help of spirit-filled Year 1 stu­dents from St John’s to en­sure the event is a suc­cess.

Com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Craig Lu­cas ap­proached the school af­ter com­ing to a re­al­i­sa­tion.

“I ap­proached them be­cause we re­alised we didn’t have a Christ­mas tree for the car­ni­val,” he said.

“Some­how it didn’t click to us un­til one of the com­mit­tee mem­bers brought it up. We ended up buy­ing a Christ­mas tree and we ended up ap­proach­ing St John’s and their Grade 1 class was won­der­ful in agree­ing to dec­o­rate it.”

Mrs Jor­gensen is the teacher in charge of the St John’s project.

“Craig asked the prin­ci­pal at the school if the two Year 1 classes would make dec­o­ra­tions that they will then donate for the tree at the Christ­mas car­ni­val,” she said.

“Each stu­dent has made two dec­o­ra­tions across the two classes and we’ll be tak­ing them down next week to dec­o­rate the tree.

“A lot of time has gone into it but I’m sure the fam­i­lies and the peo­ple who go to the car­ni­val will all think it’s very worth it.”
